OCT weather

I am looking to visit beautiful Darwin in OCT .. either 1st week or sometime about the 15th of OCT .. and i read that rainy/thunderstormy seasons begins about NOV vcty .. now mind you I luv thunderstorms, and one reason to visit DRW is I alays hear u can always see spectacular tstms..anyway..under usual circumstances .. is mid OCT still mostly dry..and sunny, hot? I luv hot, and def dont mind a few tstms here and there.. or hv u seen it that as early as OCT the rainy/monsoon kicks in?

Thanks alot for any further input related to the weather and kind regards fm NYC ..

Your time in Darwin occurs during what is called the build up.

It will be hot and very humid, yes you will see some spectacular afternoon storms, good lightening shows. Generally mornings will be sunny with increasing cloud during the day.
